Nothing's Got Something: Phone (2) OS 2.0.3 Drops!

Phone (2) OS 2.0.3

Nothing is rolling out Nothing OS 2.0.3 to the Nothing Phone (2). Available to download now, Nothing OS 2.0.3 introduces several new features and bug fixes to the Nothing Phone (1) successor, including a Pocket Mode for turning off touch inputs when the Phone (2) is not in use.

Nothing has pushed another update to the Phone (2), shortly after the company issued Nothing OS 2.0.2a for its second smartphone. For reference, Nothing OS 2.0.2a brought dozens of improvements to the Phone (2), and just as many bug fixes. In comparison, Nothing OS 2.0.3 contains fewer changes than last month's build, the changelog for which we have embedded below.

Nonetheless, Nothing OS 2.0.3 is approximately a 100 MB over-the-air (OTA) download, making it about twice the size of Nothing OS 2.0.2a. According to Nothing, Nothing OS 2.0.3 focuses on improving its Glyph Interface by adding support for the Zomato app in Glyph Progress. Additionally, this month's update introduces a compass widget, a feature that relies upon the e-Compass inside the Phone (2).

Moreover, Nothing OS 2.0.3 adds a Pocket Mode, which appears to operate just as OnePlus' equivalent. Thus, the Phone (2) will warn you via a UI element when it is in Pocket Mode, during which all touch inputs are disabled. Furthermore, the new update for the Phone (2) also makes various other minor changes, including but not limited to improved haptic feedback, NFC stability and Bluetooth connection stability. Please see our Phone (2) review for our thoughts on Nothing's second smartphone and how it differs from the Phone (1).

Compass Widget

The latest update also introduces a compass widget, utilizing the built-in e-Compass of the Phone (2). This widget can be handy for outdoor enthusiasts, hikers, or anyone who requires directional assistance on the go.

Other Minor Changes

In addition to the major features mentioned above, Nothing OS 2.0.3 includes several minor improvements. These include enhanced haptic feedback, improved NFC stability, and increased Bluetooth connection stability. These optimizations contribute to an overall smoother and more reliable user experience on the Phone (2).


With the release of Nothing OS 2.0.3, Nothing continues to enhance the user experience on the Phone (2).
